REVIEW: bumGenius 5.0 Cloth Diapers
November 5, 2015 5:52 pm | by


The geniuses behind bumGenius have delivered another home run when it comes cloth diapering. The new and improved bumGenius original 5.0 is PERFECT — for my family. Let me explain.

First off, the 5.0 is easier to stuff, thanks to the updated elastic that’s been developed exclusively for cloth diapers. The updated suedecloth adds a bit of stretchiness to the diaper for an improved fit on baby. This is especially helpful if you’ve got a squirmy little one who loves to wiggle their way out of the diaper. The new suedecloth also creates a trimmer fit across your baby’s back, so say goodbye to the bulk! 

Now, even though the color doesn’t really affect the functionality of a diaper, I had to get pepper. It’s so bold and bright and really livens up my diaper stash. I know you all, like me, have been waiting for a true red, and pepper delivers.

Overall, I couldn’t be happier with the new 5.0. Cloth diapering just got THAT MUCH easier.  You can learn more about the bumGenius 5.0 and all-things new from Cotton Babies here.

    Hi, my baby has skinny legs and the 4.0 s are leaking from the leg openings lately. You mentioned new elastic for the 5s, is it a better fit around the legs?
